Hello ladies! I am trying to transition from a lowly goth kid who wears sh*t kicker boots or ugly skate shoes all the time to a pinup lady in heels.This is quite a big change for me, obviously. The heels are one of the things that scare me most about this new style I am so set on. I can't wear flats because of my very short, fat (and muscular) legs (and they're gross looking) and I am not a fan of wedges. I adore heels, but being a college student I do a fair amount of walking and I also have a congenital joint disorder which very strongly affects my ankles so I'm very concerned about 1) coming home every night with bleeding feet and broken ankles or 2) carrying the shoes everywhere. Do you girls have any tips for heel inserts and the like for comfort and support? Any other tips for wearing heels all the time? Thank you very much!
Am glad to hear you're putting colorful color into your life . Ah shoes, woman's shoes lovely wonderful things they are high heel low heel ssoo much choice . Maybe Not so comfy all the time , but beauty is like that . Take care though of you legs and feet as well as the rest . Since you are young you may not think much of support stockings and in general tights/ hose ,but those are important in helping circulation your legs will feel and look better especially if you are on your feet and walking all day sole inserts are good too . I will also recommend some bicycle riding as fun therapy . luck ;-)
Kathleen, love those heeled oxfords. They are a good compromise. And Rayleen those sparrow sandals are amazing. Lots of good advice on here. I tend to try to only wear real heels when I need them for an occasion or really need to look fierce. I will say that I think getting the absolute best quality you can afford in heels makes them a lot more wearable, especially soft stretchable leathers. Quality over quantity.I don't think you need to be full glam to be pinup. The ladies on here had a lot of good suggestions. I love my chuck's, as far as I'm concerned, they go with about everything. They're wonderful with some dark jeans cuffed and a cute blouse knotted...I too have been working on sharpening up my image, but we are only human. Can't be sexy/beautiful when you're in pain. Unless you're a drag queen. They are made of tougher stuff than us I think.
